“I erect memorials to catastrophe and epitaphs to nothingness.”
These pages represent my most significant reading experience as a short burst of inspiration for some while, and the amazingly external and self description of the character whom I meet in it reveals a far better gestalt real-time reviewer than I shall ever become. And the described bookshop that leads to mention of Scriabin’s Mysterium can surely only accentuate that fact.
“You will also encounter strange patterns and traceries that will reside within these fictions and you must not dismiss or ignore these, for they will be the disguised lines of reality. […] …a mysterious, singular and unprecedented wholeness that will encompass your being.”
